GRAINS 

Bread-grain acreages increase 

Winter sowings of wheat for the 1937 crop, as represented by esti- 
mates for 16 countries, indicate an increase of about 5 percent over com- 
parable figures reported for 1935. Prospects point to little change in the 
European acreage, but a marked increase in winter sowings occurred in North 
America. The indicated acreage of spring wheat for harvest in the United 
States in 1937 is 20,918,000 acres. Plantings this year are expected to be 
slightly less than the 23,900,000 acres seeded last spring but the acre- 
age indicated for harvest is almost double the 11,212,000 acres of 
spring wheat harvested in 1936 when drought caused an unusually large 
summer abandonment. Winter sowings of rye , as reported by 11 countries, 
total more than 3 percent above the winter acreage sown by the same 
countries for the 1936 crop. See table on page 183 giving winter wheat 
and rye acreages in countries reported for 1937. 

Germany modifies b r ead la w 

The basic German bread law of June 9, 1931, was modified by an 
official order appearing on March 2, 1937, whereby up to 10 percent of 
potato flour, dried potato products, dried buttermilk, and milled corn 
may be mixed with rye or wheat flour for bread making without notice 
being given to this effect or markings placed on the flour containers. 
Instructions were subsequently issued by the Central Grain Association 
making it obligatory, beginning March 15, 1937, to mix corn meal with 
wheat flour in the making of bread and other bakery products to the 
amount of 7 percent. Corn meal for this purpose is sold to bakers at 
a specified price, and flour distributors are notified by the local 
grain associations in which they are enrolled as to where the corn 
meal can be obtained. This measure was taken, it is said, to reduce 
the demand for wheat resulting from the scarcity of feed grains in 
Germany. 

M ew crop fee d g rain prospect s 

The total 1937 winter barley acreage in nine important European 
producing countries amounts to 22,263,000 acres, practically the same 
as the acreage in those countries a year earlier. In the Union of 
Socialist Soviet Republics, the most important European barley producing 
country, the 1937 planned acreage is 20,068,000 acres, or 82,000 acres 
less than last year's planned acreage, compared with a combined increase 
of 34,000 acres in the eight other countries. Not much information is 
yet available on the prospective European acreage of corn and oats, ex- 
cept that slight reductions of these crops are planned in the U. S«S.R*, 
and a very slight reduction in oats acreage is expected in Prance. See 
table on corn, oats, and barley acreage, page 185.

Foreign Crops and Markets 



181 



The United States acreage of barley harvested in 1937 will he 
10,901,000 acres, compared with 8,322,000 acres harvested in 1936, if 
farmers carry out their March 1 intentions, and losses are about average. 
The 1937 intentions to plant corn in the United States indicate an area 
for harvest of 94,840,000 acres, an increase of about 2 percent over that 
harvested in 1936, while the oats intentions are for 35,660,000 acres, 
an increase of about 7 percent . 

Feed grain production in 1936 



The total 1936 production of corn, oats, and barley in the impor- 
tant producing countries so far reported, which usually raise more than 70 
percent of the world total of these grains, amounts to 161.394,000 short 
tons compared with 191,314,000 tons in 1935, 158,724,000 tons in 1934, 
and 183,297,000 tons in 1933. The total 1936 production of these grains 
in the European countries was somewhat larger than that of 1935, but in- 
creases in these countries were more than offset by the unusually small 
harvest in the United States and Canada, and a slightly smaller produc- 
tion in Argentina. See- table showing production of corn, oats, and carley 
on page 186. Tables showing current data on trade and prices are on page 187. 

COTTON 

1936 Chosen cotton crop small but expansion planned 

The final 1936 estimate of Chosen cotton production was 181,700,000 
pounds of seed cotton compared with 282,700,000 pounds for 1935, according 
to a report from Vice-Consul Cory at Seoul through the Shanghai office 
of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics. The 1936 harvest was the smallest 
in 10 years in spite of an increase in acreage of nearly 10 percent . Weath- 
er conditions in 1935 were unfavorable . In the districts producing the 
upland type, production was reduced by continued rain and low temperature 
during the flowering season. In the districts producing native types, 
rainfall was limited during the early part of the season but was followed 
by severe floods in August .

Chosen Government authorities, according to Mr. Cory, are follow- 
ing a program for expansion of cotton production. It is planned that "by 
1942 the cotton acreage will he increased to 1,017,000 acres and produc- 
tion to 690,000,000 pounds of seed cotton. By 1952 it is planned that 
the acreage will he increased to 1,716,000 acres and production to 
1,389,000,000 pounds. The program provides for the estahlishment of 
minimum cotton prices, suhsidies to compensate for losses, and general 
assistance to farmers. 

FRUITS, VEGETABLES, AND 1TUTS ■ 
Austrian Government grants quota for American apples 



The Austrian Government has allotted a quota equivalent to ap- 
proximately 2,000 metric quintals (92,000 "bushels) of American apples 
for importation during the first half of 1937, according to a report 
to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics from the American Legation in 
Vienna. The permits for the importation of these apples became effec- 
tive on March 5, 1937. Consequently the period covered ty the permits 
will he only about 4 months. 

The quota of 92,000 "bushels represents practically the maximum 
anount of American apples which the Austrian market could absorb dur- 
ing the period March through June, according to the report. The report 
mentions that a considerable quantity of American apples is already in 
storage in Austria. 

Permits to individual importers are to be granted on the basis 
of actual imports from the United States during the first half of 1931. 
The quota of 92,000 bushels is larger than the Austrian imports of 
American apples during 1935 hut is considerably less than imports in 
1936. The American Legation considers it possible that a further quota 
may be granted later in the year if local market conditions are favorable. 

LIVESTOCK, MEATS, AND WOOL 
Continental European wool situation quiet 



Fairly favorable conditions in the continental European wool tex- 
tile industries were reported for the month of February, although there 
has been a distinctly quieter tendency in all the important countries, 
largely under the influence of price recessions in the first half of 
the month. The industry, generally, would welcome a stabilization of raw 
wool values since the opinion seems to be widely shared that further 
increases in price may well hamper the expansion in consumer demand. 

France and Belgium continue to report high levels of mill activ- 
ity and favorable occupation on the basis of old orders on hand; new

commitments, however, have not "been entirely up to expectations. The 
Italian industry continues to profit from improved export business, and 
wool imports into that country are on the increase. German raw wool 
supplies continue low, but the efficient substitution of reclaimed wool 
and artificial fibers is enabling the maintenance of mill occupation on 
fairly satisfactory, even though reduced, levels.
